Dear Subscriber,

Here is Your Organic Vegetable Growing Newsletter #18

Wednesday,18th. September 2002
Welcome to All New subscribers.

Maintaining Your Garden
With Drought in many parts of Australia,
Maintaining Your Garden is becoming more important
to ensure the survival of plants and vegetables.

A good heavy mulch is critical to stop moisture loss
through evaporation.

Using *Grey water*(bath water etc.) is a viable alternative
to not having enough water for the garden.

In very Hot areas shade cloth is also an asset to
prevent loss of valuable moisture.

Water the root area (not everything) early in the morning
while it is still cool.

Keep weeds out, pull them up as soon as they appear.

A good watering every week is better than a little each day.

Leave Corn Stalks to provide shade for lettuce and other sensitive
Herbs and vegetables.

Drought is also a good time to sterilze the soil by covering
with clear plastic weighed down at the edges. 


Companion herbs



Please Note:- The term Herb is used very loosely and may include references
to vegetables,fruit,flowers as well as plants normally called herbs.
